With more than 50 general aviation airports in Florida, there are many possibilities for local jurisdictions to partner with airport managers to create opportunities for development and redevelopment that benefit both the airport and the surrounding community. This session will discuss the benefits of a comprehensive approach to planning of airport properties with communities through a focus on commerce areas, the development of modern, efficient, and adaptable facilities and infrastructure, and interconnections with the community through improvements that add to identity and quality of life for the broader community.
Collaboration between public entities is crucial to creating great communities. Often, airports and local jurisdictions operate without regard for each other, missing out on opportunities to better leverage improvements. This session will give the attendee an improved understanding of how to maximize the working relationship with their local airport.
No personal or professional promotion will be done as part of the session.
The panel style discussion will give each presenter the opportunity to discuss best practices and to answer questions from the audience.
Many planners do not understand the needs and regulatory requirements of airports - this session will improve that understanding to create a better working relationship between local planners and airport administrators.
